BACOLOD CITY – The Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) has set up a special investigation task force (SITG) for the assassination of lawyer Rafael Atotubo.

The police said the team, led by acting city police director Senior Supt. Francisco Ebreo as commander, supervised by deputy regional director for operations of regional police station 6 (Western Visayas) Senior Supt. Christopher Tambungan, was activated to speed up the resolution of the case.

The 62-year-old Atotubo, known as a defender in drug-related cases, was shot down on Thursday morning in Barangay 20 by unidentified motorcyclists in front of his house.

The SITG Atotubo met Friday morning when the Bacolod City Council adopted a resolution in the afternoon condemning the murder of the lawyer, as well as appealing to the National Investigation Office, the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group and all other law enforcement agencies to make every effort to solve the crime.

The resolution, written by alderman Caesar Distrito, a lawyer himself, urged law enforcement officials to bring the perpetrators to justice and to ensure that the incident does not happen again.

"The incident caused a chilling effect on lawyers who only practice their profession, namely enforcing the law and the law and defending the interests of their clients," it added.

"This incident with murder lawyers does not belong in a civilized society and must be resolved immediately in order to do justice to Atty, Atotubo and for the safety and security of other lawyers," the resolution added.

The integrated bar of the Philippines (IBP) – Negros Occidental Chapter, led by President Arnel Lapore, also condemned "in the strongest possible terms" what they call a "cruel deed against a colleague in our profession".

"Any attack against a lawyer weakens the practice of the law and demoralizes lawyers from fulfilling their sworn duty to defend their clients," the group said in a Facebook post, adding that "an attack against a lawyer is ultimately a threat." constitutes civil liberties and should not be tolerated. "

The IBP Negros Occidental also urged the authorities to "conduct a full investigation into the case and immediately bring the perpetrators to justice".

"We also insist that our colleagues in our profession remain steadfast, steadfast and united in our commitment to justice and truth," the group added. (PNA)
